Telling Your Story with Data

Who needs it:

Is data presented to promote discussion about student progress and achievement difficult to understand, overly complicated, or, even worse, useless? You’ve heard “data tell a story,” but you just can’t see it. Those educators who want to strengthen their ability to tell a story with their data should attend this workshop.

What you get:

The Telling your Story with Data workshop addresses how to identify the key stories to be gleaned from data and how to tell those stories effectively. Drawing upon IEBC’s data use model — Integrating Analytics, Human Judgment & Decision-Making, and Organizational Habit s — participants will learn how to turn data into information that is useful and useable. Learning more than the mere use of clever infographics, participants will practice identifying the story they want to tell and presenting it in ways, grounded in data, that ensure their message is understood and actionable.

Recent workshop participants’ feedback included:

“Great information that can be applied immediately to make more effective presentations/discussions at the schools and complex level.”

“Usually, I find what activities presenters do to be somewhat superfluous, but the activities we did were practical and truly helpful tools for us to have.”

“I know what I need to do to beef up my data presentations. A lot of great tools/tips to take back to my institution.”

“Enjoyed the stories and the group discussion and group work. The psychological connections were very intriguing. Would love to attend future workshops!”
